Those idiots got off way too easy.

On a positive note, the Devil's Hole pupfish census for this year is up, which is good news.

A year in a federal penitentiary, and a felony on his record forever seems like a fairly strong penalty. That felony will follow him for the rest of his life, impacting employment decisions and voting opportunities.

I'd bet the odds are more than 50% those guys don't give a shit about anything but time spent behind bars. I'd bet the odds are high that guy doesn't do a full year.

He already had a felony. Nothing new to him.
